Mindful Life Coach
With a strong background of math and science, Dave brings a grounded approach to spiritual practice. With a lifelong affinity for math and physics, he earned his Bachelor's degree in mathematics at Johns Hopkins University. After college, he worked in technology for years before spending five years as a teacher.
While teaching algebra to high school students, Dave found his greatest pleasure of the job was helping individual students overcome an issue they were facing. Providing support in that manner led Dave to launching his practice as a healer.
Regardless of which occupation he was involved in, Dave has for years been an active student and practitioner of meditation and the healing arts. He has practiced Qi Gong, Shamanism, Native American Healing and Chinese Medicine. In 2010, he was certified in Heart-Mind Integration, followed by becoming a Reiki Master/Teacher in 2011. He graduated from the New England School of Acupuncture in 2013 and is now a licensed acupuncturist.
In May of 2014, Dave was appointed a Justice of the Peace by Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick. He is honored to help couples create the ceremony of their choice that honors who they are and lovingly ushers them into the world of marriage.

Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker
Originally from western Massachusetts, Liz earned a Bachelor's of Psychology from Marist College in Poughkeepsie, New York. After school, she worked for a Boston-based social service organization specializing in child and family welfare. She went on to treat adults with major mental illness and substance abuse issues while earning her Master's degree in Social Work. After receiving her Master's degree, she became the co-director of an intensive outpatient addictions program. From there, she moved on to work with both undergraduate and graduate students at Tufts University, while at the same time helping children, teens, and adults at a community mental health clinic. Liz provided supervision to other clinicians, and has been part of a multidisciplinary case review team. Liz opened a private practice as a LICSW in 2009 and has thoroughly enjoyed developing her practice as well as helping other practitioners develop theirs.
Due to the all-too common "burnout" that occurs in the human service field, Liz began a journey to find other healing methods which would provide balance in her work as a healer. Liz became a Clinical Aromatherapist in March 2011 after completing a year-long class offered through Boston Medical Center geared to nurses and health care professionals. Her journey with Reiki began in February 2008 after a desire arose to develop her own spirituality. She became a Reiki Master alongside her husband, David, in May 2011. David and Liz have enjoyed exploring Reiki both individually and as a married couple.
|"Liz Varney is not your typical therapist. She combines traditional clinic methods of treatrment with holistic, spiritual methods of exploration in order to assist people on their path to healing with compassion and passion." -Lisa C.|

Licensed Massage Therapist
Originally from Andover, MA, Julia has had a lifelong passion for health and healing. She received her massage training from the Salter School of Massage Therapy, graduating with honors in 2005. In her 12 years of experience she has worked with different clients of all ages and issues from corporate executives to teen athletes, professional musicians to individuals with chronic pain and illness. She believes in the body's ability to heal itself and that massage therapy is one of the many paths to restoring health and wholeness to the body.
Julia's massages are intuitive and therapeutic and can range from flowing and relaxing to more specific and deep. Her modalities include but are not limited to:
Deep Tissue, Swedish/relaxation, Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, active and passive stretching, Hot Stone, and Sports Massage. She also provides Prenatal, Postnatal, and Labor Induction Massage.
Through her experience, she has learned that massage is not just about the physical but that it is also energetic and spiritual. As you lie on the table enveloped in warmth and comfort, the hushed music draws you in and the world around you seems to fade away. By producing this meditative state or heightened awareness of living in the now, massage can help provide emotional and spiritual balance. This brings with it true relaxation and peace and in turn, further aids the body physically.
Utilizing a variety of different techniques, she tailors each treatment to the clients specific needs. Whether it be very deep tissue or flowing relaxation, it is her goal to help her clients on their path to wellness through the beauty of touch. Creating a calm and renewing experience that will leave the client feeling relieved and rejuvenated.
